These classes focus on musical phrasing and the complexity of rhythms, the challenge of “making melodies” with the feet.
Kate Walker has been dancing for over 30 years. By age 5, she won numerous titles from dance competitions and pageants. At 10, she gave up pageants and modeling when she was invited to join a more rigorous competition team where she could focus her talents on tap, jazz and musical theater. She was involved in many stage productions with various theater camps and clubs. In 2005, Kate auditioned for the New England Patriots Cheerleaders. Kate went on to co-teach the dance teams at Pembroke Academy and Three Rivers School, which made her fall in love with teaching. She has taught both recreational and competitive dance ever since, with her most recent Intermediate and Advanced Tap Teams competing at the Step Up 2 Dance Nationals Dance Competition. Kate continues to be a student of dance and frequently attends classes, conventions, competitions, workshops and tap festivals throughout the year. Kate is excited to be a part of the Alton Dance Academy family!
